I got some of that when I was first seeing them , my second show, 2/26/77 had the first "Terrapin" and "Estimated", and I was not that deeply seeped in the albums, didn't know "TLEO", and "that song that goes duh duh dut, duh duh dut ("Eyes") . I knew "Franklin's Tower", but it wasn't till I got the tape in the mid-late 80's that I realize I had seen a "Help>Slip>Frank" !
Even in 68 Jeff Beck was pretty impressive . I could see someone, even somewhat sympathetic to the Dead being more impressed with him , especially from a guitar playing point of view . But, as we know, it's the whole group sound (special points to Phil) that made our boys so different . And I have to say, the late 60's Dead were more musically ambitions, that many of the more famous, and maybe even technically more proficient acts .
